Police Sergeant Lou Boldt heads a special task force within Seattle's Homicide bureau. His job: find and stop the Cross Killer, a twisted, perverse serial murderer who has eluded police for six months and paralyzed the city. But when a body washes up on the shore of Puget Sound, Boldt thinks the killer has finally made a mistake.

This body shows some of the work of the Cross Killer - but a job badly botched. Did this woman die while trying to escape? Did she knowingly jump in the water to preserve a clue? And is she now desperately trying to tell Boldt something? With the help of the alluring Daphne Matthews, a police psychologist, Boldt pieces together the complex puzzle - and the listener is taken along on a journey into the mind of a killer, and into the day-by-day nuts and bolts of police work, that is among the best in modern crime fiction. Undercurrents is a roller-coaster ride in the dark that will intrigue, startle, and satisfy.

    " this is the first book I read of this author whom is one of my favorites. An immediate fan I always look for his new books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina Berry | 10/10/2013

    " I love Lou Boldt, he is not the rich good looking type that you would usually read about, he is a lovable character. Lamora is great as one of the cocky detective. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sarah | 10/9/2013

    " I didn't think this was written particularly well but was such a page-turner, I forgave the poor writing after the first 25 pages or so. So scary and spooky I could hardly sleep at night after reading it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Debra | 9/20/2013

    " Another hit for this author. I just love his stuff. I like how when you get towards the end he doesn't get careless and just try to end it as quickly as possible. Good from beginning to end with twists and turns. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glennie | 9/15/2013

    " Good plots, lots of twists to keep you guessing. Some of Boldt's mental musings were a bit annoying, but otherwise enjoyed this thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine Briggs | 9/6/2013

    " Fast paced. Enjoyed it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherree | 7/3/2013

    " Having read all of the other books in this series, it's good to have the back story on the characters. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rae | 4/24/2013

    " A serial killer in Seattle is on the loose and Detective Lou Boldt must use the contradictory clues to solve the crimes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lois | 4/20/2013

    " Three main problems to solve, which I liked. Nice twist that the cop--a sergeant, not a detective or lieutenant--feels the victim's fear when he goes into a crime scene, rather than getting into the perpetrator's head. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rob Tilley | 4/4/2013

    " I always love to read books set in a place I have lived or visited. This is a great detective story based in Seattle, my current residence. This story had just the right amount of suspense and was very well written. A great book if you are looking for something light and hard to put down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bill Kerwin | 9/12/2012

    " Not bad really, but more of the same old stuff: serial killers with bizarre MO's, a city gripped by fear and an irate police bureacracy demanding an immediate solution. And cute little female cops of course. Ho hum. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bob | 9/10/2012

    " This is Ridley Pearson at his best with Homicide Detective Sergeant Lou Boldt attempting to put the pieces together of multiple murders with maybe a copycat killer involved. Good reading fromk beginning to end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Dickison | 9/3/2012

    " Good first entry in the Lou Boldt series. Lou investigates not one, but two, serial murderers while trying to sort out his feelings about his crumbling marriage. Recommended to mystery fans! "
